Elixir des Merveilles by Hermès is an “Eau de Parfum“ for women with an oriental Fougère air. Its creator describes it as “the scent of magic“ and that is that this perfume takes us to a universe where magic reigns and dreams come true. It is a perfume that symbolizes an explosion among stars, bright, fiery and powerful, a moment full of light and fiery sparks, which is engraved in our minds for eternity.
This fragrance was created in 2004 by perfumers Ralph Schwieger and Nathalie Feisthauer. It is a bold creation, which they wanted to endow with a great femininity, and for this reason, they endowed it with masculine nuances, although it seems to be an inconvenience, the combination of its sweet elements with masculine facets, give it a plus of sensuality and attractiveness.
Its captivating olfactory pyramid combines warm and cold, sweet and salty elements, creating an effervescent and intoxicating contrast. It begins with intense, sweet chords, such as vanilla sugar, Peru balsam, amber and sandalwood. Then, a heart with masculine sparkles comes to light, created by tonka bean, patchouli and resin from Thailand, sexy and sensual, to end with woody notes intertwined with caramel and orange peel.
GOOD HUMOUR. This fragrance began in the textile workshops of Hermès, a luxurious and sophisticated place, where good humour and happiness reign, elements that we can perceive perfectly in this composition.
MYSTERIOUS ELEMENT. Its incredible and detailed composition keeps a very precious and never revealed secret: the presence of a mysterious component, which we have never been able to name, a magical chord that keeps its name secret from the moment of its release.

To prolong the scent longer, apply your fragrance to your wrists and behind the earlobe. These areas pulse having a temperature above the rest of the body, and this will help the fragrance to evaporate slower. Avoid spraying perfume onto your clothes as it can stain, damage and alter certain fabrics.Protect your fragrance from direct sunlight and heat, otherwise it could alter the composition of the fragrance and escape.
To prolong the scent of the fragrance, we recommend using products from the same range as shower gel, body lotions or deodorants.
